New West Youth Services brought together young nature enthusiasts for a weekly drop-in of planting and growing food and flowers with the Royal City Planters program.
Under the expert guidance of skilled gardeners from the Parks department, participants have had the opportunity to nurture their green thumbs and add beauty to Moody Park and Ryall Park. 🌺🌿
The Royal City Planters program provides exclusive access to seeds from the New Westminster Public Library's new Seed Bank. This incredible partnership between city departments has made it possible for young participants work on everything from simple herb gardens to vibrant hanging baskets. The youth were thrilled to work closely with the horticulture team from the New Westminster Parks department, receiving valuable insights and life skills. 🌳🌷
